    Intex Ultra Frame vs Intex Metal Frame

    Any comments as to the durability of these two frame sets and also if there was any difference in the quality of the liner? Thanks.

    Re: Intex Ultra Frame vs Intex Metal Frame

    Last year we had the blue 15 foot and this year i put in the 18 ft ultra. The ultra is better is several ways. 1. the liner is thicker seems almost twice as thick. 2. the frame steel is heavier duty. 3. The frame is almost oval instead of round adding strength. 4. the feet for the legs are much bigger. 4. IT is not BLUE

    Thank you. Down here we are cursed with the salt air and the constant heat and humidity so the heavy duty steel is encouraging, and the liner is really important since our current one has a tiny billion holes in it! You have sold me on the Ultra, thanks!

    Re: Intex Ultra Frame vs Intex Metal Frame

    I left my last ultra frame up for three years without taking it down. It went through three really cold, long, long, frozen winters in Pennsylvania (last winter it went to MINUS 17), and when I took it down, it looked nearly new. The uprights seem a lot stronger than the ones on the regular blue pool.

    We put in the ultraframe pool a couple of months ago and see rust already at the welded frame joints So much for the "Ultra" part. Yes we have a saltwater pool.

    The structural shape of the pool is much stronger/rigid than the standard round tubulars of the blue pool.

    I really prefer my Ultra over the blue version, much better quality.
